The speech of the night early Tuesday had Mia Love of Utah bringing down the house.

Meanwhile, the race-obsessed Chris Matthews was busy bloviating on MSNBC, so his tiny audience missed it.

n a  speech that drew sustained applause at the GOP convention Tuesday night, Ms. Love recounted her parents’ journey to the U.S., saying they arrived with only $10 in their pockets.

“The America I grew up knowing was centered in self-reliance and filled with the possibilities of living the American dream,” said Ms. Love, the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah.

She made apparent references to civil-rights icons Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Our story has been told over 200 years, with small steps and giant leaps, from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream,” she said.

Ms. Love, a staunch conservative who converted to Mormonism, is challenging Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson, a six-term incumbent. Cook Political Report rates the race a tossup, and Ms. Love’s exposure on Tuesday night could give her a boost.

This woman is genuine.

Update: Love’s speech is the most viewed at the RNC YouTube page, but she still does not exist at NBC. Thanks to Instapundit for the link!

    I’ve pointed out in the past, whenever there is a speaker of color at the RNC, the lsm nets switch over to their talking heads to hide it.

    They ignored her because she’s obviously out of place…..if she were at Obama campaign HQ in Chicago that is. That was one pack of pasty people. I was very glad to see her at the Republican convention.

    Once again the leftist media proves that the problem is not one of bias, but of fundamental dishonesty.

    If they were merely biased – but honest – they wouldn’t pull this kind of crap.

    What a beautiful, charming and intelligent woman and what a great message for America. I only hope she is strong enough to endure and rise above the ugliness and vitriol she will have to face – coming from the party of compassion and tolerance.
